Hannah Queen – Guest Post

I am so pleased to introduce the first guest post by Hannah Queen. Hannah is incredibly sweet and has excellent taste, as well as a contagious appreciation for the simple beauty of life. I first stumbled across Hannah’s gorgeous photography on Flickr and still remember how excited I was to rediscover her on Instagram. Do yourself a favor and take some time to check out her blog, Honey and Jam, and her stunning cookbook, also titled Honey and Jam. Hannah is such a talented individual and I’m so grateful for her delightful contribution today. Thank you so much, Hannah!

“Elinor Dashwood (-Ferrars!) has always been my favorite Austen heroine, a character who feels like a kindred spirit, a dear friend and someone to strive to emulate.”

This poem reminds me of Elinor:

Don’t Worry
Things take the time they take. Don’t
How many roads did St. Augustine follow before he became St. Augustine?
